Marketing Interactive published an article from the Digital Marketing Asia Singapore 2018 conference, where SzeKi Sim, Head – Brand, SGInnovate, participated as a panellist for the panel titled ‘Brand Safety and the Zero-Tolerance Imperative’. Despite the huge opportunity that programmatic marketing presents, panellists say that it is not necessarily for everyone. Adam Cordner, Senior Solution Consultant at Domo, said that at the end of the day, marketers need to understand their brands, know what needles have an impact on the brand, and to be clear on what they want to measure. Panellists also added that the journey between an agency and a brand needs to now form into a collaboration. “I think the agency-brand experience is not a master-slave type of a relationship. It is a partnership where they are both vested towards the same purpose,” said SzeKi.
OpenGov reported the MAS has announced that the 380 participating investors who enrolled in the Singapore Fintech Festival’s (SFF) deal-making platform, MATCH (Meet ASEAN’s Talents and Champions), have indicated intentions to invest up to US$6.2 billion in ASEAN enterprises next year. An additional US$6 billion has been earmarked over the subsequent two years. MATCH is a new platform at this year’s SFF which curates and brings together promising next-generation ASEAN enterprises with global private equity and venture capital. At the beginning of this month, MAS also announced the 60 finalists of the Global FinTech Hackcelerator and FinTech Awards.
